While The Walt Disney Company largely employs people who work in person or on a hybrid basis, the official job board also includes remote positions that you can do from home. It’s smart to bookmark this page and come back to check it regularly. That’s because Disney has hired remote Guest Services Representatives who live in certain states, such as Florida, Illinois, Kentucky and Virginia.

Love the thrill of planning your perfect Disney vacation, picking the ideal dates, booking the best rooms, and arranging a fun-packed itinerary? As a Disney-themed travel planner, you can do the same for folks who want help arranging their perfect trip that includes a Disney theme park, resort or cruise.

In this role, you’d work for a travel company, not Disney, but be your own boss. This means setting your own hours and working anywhere you like. You just need a phone, computer and Internet to help your clients by researching vacation details, creating itineraries, providing quotes and booking travel. Pay is based on commission, which means you’ll be earning a percentage of the vacations you help plan. Starting commission is typically 10% to 25% of the total cost of the client’s vacation package, and this can increase as you book more trips. In some cases, you’ll also qualify for discounts on your own vacations.

Find it easy to talk about your Disney experiences with friends and family at social gatherings? You’d be a natural at hosting your own YouTube channel and starring in videos where you share your Disney expertise, just like the hosts of Mammoth Club, Megan Moves and The Mouselets.

Viewers turn to online videos from Disney fans all the time to get answers to their many questions before booking their own Disney vacation (such as how to find deals, what the new rides are like and which restaurants are best).

After you reach these milestones, you can apply to become a YouTube Partner in your YouTube Studio dashboard (in the left menu, click Earn, then Apply).

According to, YouTube content providers earn between $1.61 and $29.30 per 1,000 views. Depending on how many views you get for your videos, you can earn hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars every month.

Success story: “Planning Disney vacations part-time for others pays for my own Disney vacations and household bills!”

Kim Bowers, work from home Disney success story

In 2007, Kim Bowers had a life-changing revelation. “Coming home from a Disney vacation, I thought, ‘I want this to be a regular part of my life.’ I began to research how to make that happen without moving. I landed on becoming a Disney-focused travel advisor because I had experience with planning and working with families, and I loved the idea of helping families have great vacations.”

“I started with Off to Neverland Travel in 2008. Since then, I have planned hundreds of vacations, and also expanded my portfolio to include cruises and other destinations. Planning a Disney vacation, especially one with all the bells and whistles, a first-time visit or a multi-generation trip can be more complex than planning a trip to Europe! So, typically, people come to me overwhelmed by all of the information available online and the opinions they got from friends and co-workers. I step in and help them tune into what really matters for their unique situation. After I help them choose and book a vacation package, I act as their personal pre-travel concierge. I help them build a daily itinerary, then handle all the leg work and provide a customized itinerary.

So, what does the average workday look like for Kim? “A typical day for me involves phone conversations with clients about their plans and researching or booking experiences. Aside from the hotel package, I also book dining reservations, tours, limos…anything a client needs for their trip. I also do a lot of problem-solving, especially for clients with special needs. And it’s important to note that while planning Disney vacations is fun, a very important part of my job is being there to help when things go wrong. I jump into action for my clients when they need to change plans due to illness, hurricane warnings, etc. While a client is traveling, I am on call for them should something happen and they need my help, even holidays and weekends.”

Kim adds that promotion for her business is also up to her. “As an independent contractor, I have support from my host agency, Off to Neverland Travel, but I am responsible for my own marketing and social media.” The upside is that Kim can decide how long she wants to work during any given week. “On average, I work 20 hours per week currently, but it has been more and less over the years.”

Plus, there are additional benefits of working as a remote Disney-themed travel planner, Kim notes: “I enjoy the flexibility and independence of working from home. At first, it was great for my kids. Now they are grown and I care for my mother at home, so it’s nice for her to have me available.”

The extra paycheck has helped Kim live out of her dream of making Disney getaways a regular part of her life. “It can take time to build a client base. Now, in my 15th year, working part-time, I earn enough to fund family trips and pay several household bills.”

And on top of it all, she genuinely enjoys what she does. “Vacation time is precious. Whether they are spending $2,000 or $20,000, everyone wants to share experiences and unplug from the everyday. And with Disney, in particular, trips are often a rite of passage or big family celebration so it’s wildly important to them for everything to be just right. Helping people provide that for their families, and building relationships with them along the way, is rewarding. Recently, a young mom called, saying, ‘You helped my parents plan our Disney trips when I was a kid and now I want to take my kids. Would you please help us?’ What could be better than that?”
